No more Buffy

WOW! I can’t believe that there’s no more episodes of Buffy! Like, no more never, ever! It was an awesome finale – I don’t want say too much ‘cos I know some of you .uk readers won’t get to see it for a while yet.
Here’s some interesting links about the end of an era:
Bye-Bye, Buffy – CNN. I liked the comment that “The very fact thirteen different people can watch the exact same episode and take thirteen different meanings from it makes it a crucial text”. Very true! 🙂
“Buffy” All Staked Out E Online “After all, like the inscription said on her tombstone when she died (for the second time) two years ago: “She saved the world…A lot.”
SMG Board. Lots of interesting chat about the finale! Good stuff!!
Here’s my own personal fave line from the finale:
Buffy describes herself… “I’m cookie dough. I’m not done baking yet. One day I’ll be cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat me… er… enjoy warm, delicious cookie me, that’s fine, that will be then, when I’m done.”

One week to go!

Oh wow! The end is almost here! Just how good was Buffy tonight? AWESOME!! More exciting than 3 wooden ice cream cones, more addictive than a shinny new lawnmower and enough action to make you lose your head!!

So, only one more week to go! How will it end? It’s going to be a nerve wracking week! Here’s some interesting Buffy stuff to help you make it through the 7 days:
Official website
Girls of Buffy in FHM US(noice!)
Buffy Auction – buy AUTHENTIC stuff from the show! WOW! COOL! (And pricey!)(But worth it!)
Photos from the wrap party!
Buffy Quotes
Official Buffy Fan Club – you can buy series finale script here – but make sure you wait ’til next week before reading it!
One thing’s for sure, it’s going to be a tough week of waiting…

I Want A Magic Jacket!

I need to find myself a magic jacket!

If there’s one thing I look forward to every week, it’s my weekly top-up of good vs evil goings on down at the Hellmouth. And no, I’m not talking about life in the office (although sometimes, it seems to resemble one). I’m talking about Buffy!

Before I tell you about why this week’s show got my “top banana” award, I want to rant about the madness of the US TV networks. OK, I shouldn’t moan too much, ‘cos I’m getting to see the new season before I would if I was in the UK. But, the whole thing about a SEASON, is that they’re a series of shows which are all interconnected and are meant to be shown sequentially. So why do they start off the new season with a couple of new episodes, then throw in a couple of repeats from a few weeks back, then a few new ones, then repeats from the same series again, etc, etc so poor old me doesn’t know when I’m going to be able to watch a new episode. It’s crazy – they start the thing in October, and then by May I’ll have seen maybe 12 new episodes- and probably seen the 1st 2 of them about 50 times. MALLET MADNESS! I think the big cheeses in charge of these TV Networks live in Cloud Cuckoo Land or something.
So anyway – this week’s NEW episode had Dawn fall for this blokie on the football team. Sorry, I should say American Football team, ‘cos it certainly wasn’t footie as I know it. Anyway, she kinda goes all ga-ga other this bloke, and does the whole teenage gal “head-over-heals” “I want to rebel” kinda malarky that gets her into trouble. Anyway, Dawn and Buffy get into an argument and Buffy tries to speak to this bloke. She then goes all ga-ga over him too, which in turn causes more hassle between the two sisters. It soon becomes apparent that there’s some kind of spell thing going on, and the rest of the gang try to figure out what’s causing it. In the process, Anya and Willow also get put under this spell, and it all ends with each of them doing crazy stuff to prove they love this bloke the most. Anyway, Spike and Xander work out that the thing that is causing the spell is this magic jacket that the blokie has. It looks like a plain old jacket, but deep down it has powers that makes any HB fall for you. Nice. Anyway, they save the day by destroying the jacket and then everything goes back to normal again.

I want a magic jacket.
